Mystery of tweets @Vlaanderen solved

The Flemish authorities have confirmed that the mystery about who is sending tweets using the name @Vlaanderen (@Flanders in English) has been solved. The twitterer has come forward.

Earlier the Flemish authorities voiced their exasperation after somebody starting sending tweets using the name @Vlaanderen (@Flanders in English) and using their official logo.

Every day the account sends out scores of tweets with news about Flanders and the Flemish authorities. In addition the account used the official logo of the Flemish authorities.

A spokesman for Flemish administration noted that something was awry if a personal initiative was using the official logo of the Flemish administration, but on Sunday he was glad to confirm that following the publicity the matter had received contact had been made with the mystery twitterer and that he had agreed to replace the logo.

The official Twitter account of the Flemish authorities is @Vlaamseoverheid.
